Different Types of Gutter Hangers

Different Types of Gutter Hangers

December 12, 2019

Gutter hangers are essential in attaching your gutters to your roof. They’re basically responsible for providing stability, support and protection for the entire gutter system. Without these hangers, your gutter system won’t be able to function properly, making your roof and your home vulnerable to water damage.

In this post, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, a reputable provider of seamless gutters, discusses the pros and cons of three types of gutter hangers.

Brackets and Straps

This type of hanger system typically comes in a half-round style, which means the hangers are wrapped around the gutter and fastened to the fascia board. With this design, these gutter hangers can add strength to the structure. They can also withstand constant weather changes.

Spikes and Ferrules

This type of hanger is another good option to consider if you’re planning a gutter installation job. It consists of a metal tube or ferrule that’s driven across the gutter, ending at the back of the gutter. The gutter is thus fastened to the fascia board. The obvious drawback is the risk of the wood splitting when the spike is inserted in the fascia. Make sure to hire an experienced and skilled installer if you’re using this type of hanger. Spikes and ferrules are relatively easy to install, but it’s important to be careful when working with these hangers.

Hidden Hangers

Many experts consider this hanger system to be the best. Placed horizontally inside the gutter and screwed into the fascia board, it features a sleek and seamless design. Hidden hangers enable your gutter system to handle a larger amount of water while ensuring adequate support and stability.

This is the second time I have hired Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY to install gutters on my home. They have an outstanding product! The work is done extremely well and professionally. I highly recommend them for all your home improvement needs.

The crew installed our gutters and completed the job in less time than anticipated. They were friendly, hardworking and cleaned up after they were done. I would recommend Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY to any home owner who needs new gutters.

We just had gutters installed on our house. It was pouring rain, cold, and we still had piles of snow in the areas that they had to work in. They showed up on time, never complained and had all gutters installed in less than three hours....in pouring rain! They were great, and we are extremely satisfied!
